The important difference between the two machines is probably the

The server seems to be unable to cope with those new protocols.
Thanks for the help :)
I tried things on a newer Ubuntu thinking that it will have a newer
version of OpenSSL (which it does).
OpenSSL 1.0.1 14 Mar 2012
OpenSSL 1.0.1c 10 May 2012
As you can see althou the versions are not exactly the same, the major
version numbers are... so I would expect the Ubuntu version to fail in
the same way the Debian one does ... supprisingly it does NOT (as in,
the Ubuntu version works without a problem)
Having a quick look at the OpenSSL change log
(http://www.openssl.org/news/changelog.html) I can see the differences
in the versions hint at TLS behaviour alterations ... so the problem is
down to the version of OpenSSL (just as you said)
Do you think its worth sending an email (or posting) to OpenSSL to
inform them of the issue? (I guess it could be bug)
